May 2015


TRGC had a busy time in April:  the month started with two-event Monterey trip and ended with our Teal Bend tournament.  We were fortunate to have great weather for all the events.


Our Monterey trip opened at Poppy Hills, newly remodeled and playing fast in the fairways and really fast on the greens.  We even had an Alice Cooper sighting—the famous rocker and golf nut was making the turn on his early-morning round at Poppy Hills as we were on the practice green.  Brett Svobodny posed for a picture with the musician.  For Poppy Hills, we used a skins format to determine the winners, while at Nicklaus Golf Club we competed with standard stroke play.

Jim Svobodny                                               2 skins

Richard Ribacchi                                         2 skins

Mike Morrow                                               1 skin

Kim Staley                                                    1 skin

Michael Marks                                             1 skin


Kim Staley won the fewest putts with 30.

We added another new member to the club, bringing our total to 107.  As always, TRGC is looking to increase its membership base, so be sure to invite your friends, co-workers, and golf buddies from other groups to meet our club.  Don’t forget, you can take $5 off your renewal fee for next year for each new member you bring to the club (limit of five new members per person per year).



Our health issues for club members seem to be stabilized right now; let’s hope this continues.  Sandy Davis is still undergoing treatment for serious eye problems, but the results show that he is still playing good golf.
